Alcoa-is primarily a producer of aluminum products. Co.'s operations consist of five reportable segments: Alumina, which consists of its refinery system; Primary Metals, which consists of its smelter system; Global Rolled Products, which represents Co.'s midstream operations and produces aluminum sheet and plate for a variety of end markets; and Engineered Products and Solutions, which produces products that are used mostly in the aerospace, commercial transportation, and power generation end markets; as well as Transportation and Construction Solutions, which produces products that are used mostly in the nonresidential building and construction and commercial transportation end markets.
AA-is a component of-XME.

Good luck to you. Don.
